  3. 3. Through curiosity, advancement in technology and the innate desire to learn mankind is beginning to find his place in the universe. THE SOLAR SYSTEM MERCURY Activate Mercury Little by little we begin to learn that the Earth, is not the center of the universe, that we, mankind, are surrounded by a vastness of matter that are made up from billions of stars in an infinite void of unexplained phenomena.
  4. 4. Comprehending this we must continue to confront the facts that our own Milky Way galaxy is one of billion of other galaxies each having a cumulation of a billion stars and more.  THE SOLAR SYSTEM VENUS Activate Venus Activate Telescope
  5. 5. From Earth the sun and six of the nine planets (counting Earth) can be seen with the naked eye, although the planets, are millions of miles from us. EARTH Activate Earth THE SOLAR SYSTEM Activate Telescope
  6. 6. Through advancement in technology mane has been able to reach out to the planets with space probes that have landed on Mars and Venus and provided close-up views of all the planets visible without a telescope. MARS Activate Mars With these explorations man has retrieved close-up pictures that have dramatically changed our knowledge of the solar system and beyond. THE SOLAR SYSTEM
  7. 7. THE SUN Earth 93,000,000 miles from sun Mars 142,000,000 miles from sun Venus 67,000,000 miles from sun Mercury 36,000,000 miles from sun Mars 142,000,000 miles from sun
